Algae Biofuel within the decade Posted by RobertTulip on Tue July 20 2010 12:42:59 AM 1

On 25 May 1961, US President John Kennedy told Congress that America would put a man on the moon within the decade. Through vision and resources and ingenuity it happened.

Peak oil and global warming mean the world has to shift to algae biodiesel before 2020. With vision and resources and ingenuity the world can shift to a sustainable energy economy in five years.

Security of global energy and climate is more important than the moon shot. Sustainable energy is the basis of human global security. Algae is the only source of liquid fuel that can maintain economic activity on current projected scale.

Large scale algae production is essential to stabilise the climate and sequester carbon, and can do so through a sustainable market based solution, as long as governments take a lead as they did with the internet.

The USA has previously addressed large scale programs with the Manhattan Project, the Apollo Space Program, and the internet. A similarly large transformative and innovative program is needed for climate and energy security through algae biofuel.
